View Full Version : Thumbs up to Cassandra Barr!!!

Nov 3rd, 2004, 01:03 AM
Was very happy to see her make a last minute dash to Manila and has entered Qualifying. Brilliant scheduling decision!

She will pick up 0.75 easily and then should become the 2nd seed in the main draw!

Should make the quarters at least with a reasonable draw but I have probably jinxed her now by saying that!

But yeah really good decision for her to stabilise and move her rank up into the 600's hopefully!

Also very pleasing to see Stosur and Wheeler commit to the $50K in USA, dunno if Wheeler will get there, but glad that Samantha has decided to enter a challenger, its been a while for her and as the 2nd seed it will be good to see how she copes with the pressure of a high seeding.

She lost in the Doubles Q/F

Still there is next week as well, even if she picks up another point or two that should get her in the 600's

After Manila next week, Cassandra is off to Pretoria in Sth Africa to play the 2 x $10K's there!

Wonder if she will then come back via the 2x$10K's in India! Got to give her credit for trying!
